Man Converts His Stairway Into Wine Larder Which Holds 156 Bottles


A constructor in Australia who had hatred for wasted space had got a brainy idea of converting the stairway into a wine larder. Stepping up does have a novel idea. Hasn’t it? This is an idea of dazzling and I wish I had such a thought!

58 year aged Murray Berrill from Bendigo of Victoria, the owner of Murray Berrill Constructions, purchased ready-made custom sized drawers at a hardware merchant called Bunnigs at the cost around £2 500 ( approximately $5 000).

The cost to fill the tidily fixed holders of wine inside the drawers would definitely cost obviously more depending on your favorites.

This well enclosed wine larder of difference, is able to to have a storage of 156 bottles! It consists of a thermometer hygrometer which enables to maintain the exact temperature for the wine to have during hot summers and plans too are in preparation to set up a minor cooling unit.

Murray Berrill told The Daily Mail;

“I hate dead space when renovating a house, as you’re essentially paying for nothing. So we thought of putting the wine in drawers in the staircase rather than behind it. The drawers are a wide width and are very strong – we spent around $500 (£250) at Bunnings just on the drawers alone. We had to work out how all the bottles were going to fit and make sure the entire design was strong enough.”

A thing like this has indeed aroused curiosity in the social platform and as a result many of them have started to look at their stairways in different aspects! Majority of us always need more storage facilities and how about more wine…?

Comments such as:

“Only complaint is that there [aren’t] enough stairs.”

“Brilliant use of the space. I especially like the two drawer per step idea.”

“Impressive work, you are obviously a very skilled tradesman. More than one headache in there.”

The most entertaining tale which has gone viral and someone who is able to do more with this undercroft is Kelly Muller’s mum‘s mum ,a grandma from Ontario, Canada.

When her daughter Kelly, visited her 82 year old mother who lives alone at their family home during the lockdown, she was able to see a big signboard of “Need more wine” through the window of her mum.

Kelly told “I wasn’t shocked to pull up and see her holding up a handmade sign. I asked her what kind, and she said, ‘Red? White? It doesn’t matter to me. They all taste the same!”
